It was by this method that they determined the positions of the stars in this Zodiac; it was thus they found that a certain star of the Lyre was in 8h. 24m., the Heart of the Hydra in 4d. 7h., longitudes which are ascribed to Hermes, but which are calculated on the Hindu Zodiac. — The Secret Doctrine: The Zodiac and its Antiquity
The quiver full of arrows reminds us of Ezek. xxi. 21 : "For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way at the head of the two ways" (viz., for the sun between Sagittarius and Capricornus to the tail of Hydra in Scorpio southwards, but between Taurus and Gemini to the head of Hydra in Cancer northwards) " to use divination; he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver." — Hebrew & Greek Scriptures
Then for the next 360 years was the 10 rulers of the Shishunag family. Kshemajit (who ruled from 1892 to 1852 B.C.) was the fourth in the Shishunag dynasty, and was a contemporary of Lord Buddha's father, Shuddhodana. It was during this period in which Buddha was born. It was during the reign of Bimbisara, the fifth Shishunag ruler (1852-1814 B.C.), when Prince Siddhartha became the enlightened Buddha. Then it was during the reign of King Ajatashatru (1814-1787 B.C.) when Buddha left this world. Thus, he was born in 1887 B.C., renounced the world in 1858 B.C., [became Buddha in 1852 B.C.], and died in 1807 B.C. according to this analysis. — Reestablishing the Date of Lord Buddha
Alphard.—S.E. by E. 31° from Procyon, and S.S.W. 23° from Regulus, is the star Alphard, or α in Hydra
, called also Cor Hydræ. Sirius, Procyon, and Alphard form nearly an isosceles triangle, the angle at Procyon being obtuse. Also the stars Alphard, Regulus, and Procyon form a right-angled triangle, the right angle being at Alphard. — The Stars and Constellations; How and When To Find and Tell Them

Here is the eagle with the snake, and the figure of a boy is hovering over the water seeking the heart in the water. This is of course a particular case; the discovery of feeling in a man is a special problem. The heart in the water cannot be discovered as long as the snake is also in the water. To enable the boy to find the heart, the snake has to be brought up into the sky or the air. If the two are together, then the heart is the heart of the snake, the feeling is identical with the snake. — Nietzsche's Zarathustra (Lecture VI: 14 November 1934)
Another nascent philosophical concept with possible relevance to alternate reality games is hyperstition
. A hyperstition can be loosely defined as a fictional work or belief system that somehow gradually takes on the appearance of reality. Obviously based on the concept of superstition, hyperstition is distinguished by being predominantly digitally spawned and proliferated. — This Is Not a Game: A Guide to Alternate Reality Gaming
Whatever its specific variants, the practice of hyperstition necessarily involves three irreducible ingredients, interlocked in a productive circuit of simultaneous, mutually stimulating tasks:
N u m o g r a m ⇔ M y t h o s ⇔ U n b e l i e f
The trump card of the warrior is that he believes without believing. But obviously a warrior can't just say he believes and let it go at that. That would be too easy. To just believe without any exertion would exonerate him from examining his situation. A warrior, whenever he has to involve himself with believing, does it as a choice. A warrior doesn't believe, a warrior has to believe. Death is the indispensable ingredient in having to believe. Without the awareness of death, everything is ordinary, trivial. It is only because death is stalking him that a warrior has to believe that the world is an unfathomable mystery. Having to believe in such a fashion is the warrior's expression of his innermost predilection. Power always makes a cubic centimeter of chance available to a warrior. The warrior's art is to be perennially fluid in order to pluck it. — The Wheel of Time, Carlos Castaneda
Another reason why superstitions fall short of hyperstition, even when they 'come true', is that they fail to decode the relationship between belief and reality in the way that hyperstition always does. A crucial dimension of hyperstition is an appreciation of the hyperstitional process itself.
